Despite nanny groups’ claims that pollen from genetically modified corn kills monarch butterflies, new field tests from the University of Illinois find that “under actual field conditions, no mortality directly or indirectly attributable to ingestion of endotoxin-containing corn pollen could be detected” to black swallowtail butterflies, which are just as likely to encounter the corn pollen as monarchs. It seems that GE-corn is just as safe for butterflies as it is for humans.
